Asia Ride List

Since 2013 I have been focussing on travel to SE Asia a region I unfortunately overlooked when I was younger always attracted to Europe and North America when so much more existed closer to home.


2018 Nepal – I was not initially planning to ride Nepal but a great airfare and affordable bike rental made it attractive to me.

2018 Philippines – 3rd time to attempt this loop ride of the highest roads in the Philippines and still some issues prevented me fully completing it but had a great time all the same.

2018 Sri Lanka – Having enjoyed India I decided to bring forward my idea to ride here and enjoyed the friendly people and tea plantations very much.

2018 Laos – The Black Dog ride club had been planning a ride from Thailand to Laos but border issues stopped it so I decided to go for a look myself and the scenery was amazing.

2018 Vietnam – I was planning to ride from bottom to top but unseasonal weather meant I converted this to a loop which in turn gave me a great look at Southern Vietnam.

2017 India – Himalaya ride. I finally got myself to India and rode the highest passes in the world and saw the most spectacular scenery I have ever set eyes on in my life. Tough but the most amazing ride I have done.

2017 Taiwan - By any means. I wanted to ride Taiwan for years but there is no motorcycle rental for foreigners. Scooters however are ok so eventually I decided to ride by whatever means available to me.

2017 Thailand – Black dog adventure club. I love riding northern Thailand, it has the best roads so when I got an invite to join a group of riders on a non professional group tour it was perfect timing as I felt I should try be less of a solo rider.

2015 Borneo – Death March ride. I wanted to ride more of Malaysia and actually had tried to visit here already but had to abandon due to illness but this time I made it and brought a mate of mine from the Philippines to ride with.

2015 Thailand – Two loonies ride. My good friend and ride partner from Australia had arranged to meet me in Chiang Mai to do a motorcycle tour on some of the best roads.

2014 Indonesia – Volcano tour. If I mention I did a ride in Indonesia everyone says Bali, but no this ride was in East Java, it is the real Indonesia as one local there put it to me when comparing to Bali.

2014 Philippines – It’s more fun. Meeting my mate who was retiring to Philippines in the near future we rode around a number of locations and it was a real surprise and somewhere I will ride more in the future.

2014 Thailand – Golden triangle tour. No luggage, no GPS which was in my lost baggage, broken camera. It was not the best start but turned into my best ride in Thailand by the time it was over.

2013 Malaysia – Highlands ride. I returned to ride more of Malaysia which is a great destination with good roads and fantastic food. A  terrific motorcycle tour.

2013 Thailand – First motorcycle tour in northern Thailand. This was another big step after my Singapore ride and it really was so fantastic. Cannot think of a better place to start riding overseas than this. 

2013 Singapore/Malaysia – I had been wanting to start riding Asia and Malaysia rather than Thailand was my initial target but hard to source a rental then I came across a shop in Singapore.
